NYS Assembly Judiciary Committee: Cuomo Underreported COVID Nursing Home Deaths
The Associated Press reports that the New York State Assembly’s investigation into former Governor Andrew Cuomo has, indeed, concluded that the Democrat’s administration misrepresented how many nursing home residents died of COVID-19.
The AP attributes the information to a lawmaker who reviewed the committee’s still-secret report.
Assembly Member Phil Steck was among the Assembly Judiciary Committee members who reviewed a copy of the report Thursday, November 18 and Friday, November 19 in advance of its public release. That public released date, however, has not been discussed.
The report covers a wide array of allegations of misconduct against Cuomo, including sexual harassment claims, using taxpayer-funded resources while writing his pandemic-response book and pulling strings to get family members and members of his inner circle to the front of the line for testing when appointments were hard to get in the early days of the pandemic.
A spokesperson says Cuomo hasn’t been allowed to see a copy of the report. Cuomo denies misleading the public on nursing home deaths.
